"Take the advice of no one," the young August Kleinman is told by his mother as the Nazi party rises to power around them in Hamburg. With these words to guide him, young August escapes to America, where he goes on to build a fortune, a family, and a life on his own terms. At the defining moments that reveal character and shape fate, August's bold journey illuminates, at the deepest levels, the ways our lives truly unfold. A shocking encounter with a Japanese soldier in a cave during World War II, an audacious decision to start a long-shot business in America, a lifelong passion for an Italian girl named Ginger, estrangement from his modern children - this is an exquisite novel by "the most mature and accomplished novelist of his generation" (Alan Cheuse, National Public Radio).

"...like the Bach cello suites that Kleinman plays on his stereo at night, [Carry Me Across the Water] is a chamber piece that evokes intense and somber emotions." (The New York Times Book Review)

A bit different
It was a bit different from I expected after reading the description but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
